    Re: co2

    You can use dry ice to apply Co2. Simply place it in the top and close it up. As stated above Co2 is heavier and drops.

    Re: 1/8 screen?

    You might try McMaster Carr. If there is a branch close by you can even order it and go pick it up. If you look on their website they call it wire cloth.
